A Note From Father Joel

Dear Co-Travelers,

Dear Co-Travelers,


In first two days of this month the whole Catholic Church celebrated the All Saints and All Souls Day in preparation for the big Solemnity of Jesus Christ, King of the Universe. And also in this month the whole world watched and waited who gonna be the 45 political leader of United States of America. And then last Sunday, the Holy Door for the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy was closed to end the designated year declared by our beloved Pope Francis. We also gave thanks to God for all the blessings on Thanksgiving Day. And now, the last Sunday of this month marks the First day of the new liturgical calendar of our Catholic Church. So, as a co- traveler in the journey of faith, I welcome all of you in this new calendar year of our Church. With humble and grateful heart let us travel together with our Bishop David L. Ricken, the designated Pastor in the Diocese of Green Bay. Biblically speaking, the sheep listen to the voice of their pastor and follow. I do believe that despite of our differences of opinions and points of view in various aspects of our life as a parish and as members of our Church and coming from all different kinds of walks in life, being baptized persons in the name of the Holy Trinity, we are listening the voice of our pastor and trying to follow his lead. Our Bishop David Ricken  in leading the flock entrusted under his pastoral care, did make pastoral programs for all parishes in his diocese indicating the priorities to be taken as we journey towards fulfillment of blessed life. One of the programs is called:Parishes: Called to be Holy, Fully Engaged ,Fully Alive. This was promulgated last June 12, 2011. In this program we might ask some questions: Did it happen here on our parish? What does it mean fully engaged ? – This means that the members are loyal and have a strong psychological and emotional connection to their Church or parish. They are more spiritually committed, they are more likely to invite friends, family members and co-workers to congregational events, and they give more both financially and in commitment of time. So in our involvement and commitment into our parish Church, what would be the correct answer if we are asked: what is the basis/foundation/ main reason why I am where I am and I do what I do in this Church? To follow up that question, is my listening to Jesus’ voice and following him the main reason for everything I am and do? 

Lately, in the continuous guidance of our bishop, he calls us to join him in the journey of “Disciples on the way” In this current program we are being reminded of our true identity, Disciples of Jesus . As we enter then, the new calendar of the Church, after receiving abundant blessings during the Holy year of Mercy, blessings that we maybe have said: “we were lucky!” may I simply invite you, my dear co-traveler, to simply and humbly follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit preparing and leading us all during this Advent seasons to rejoice in celebrating His spiritual birth in our hearts on Christmas day. God bless you and your family!!!
